Title: Dalton's Atomic Theory
Caption: The law of definite proportions and the law of conservation of mass interpreted in terms of Dalton's atomic theory.
Notes: Use Dalton's atomic theory to interpret Berzelius's experiment (Figure 2.6). Assume sulfur atoms have a relative mass of 32.066 and lead atoms a relative mass of 207.2. What is the atom ratio of lead to sulfur in lead sulfide? How does the experiment confirm the law of conservation of mass?
Keywords: Dalton's atomic theory, law of definite proportions, law of conservation of mass
